About three quarters of Queensland deaths in home fires are in homes without smoke alarms. It’s a simple fact that smoke detectors save lives. As a home owner you have a responsibility to make sure your smoke detectors are operating correctly.

Smoke Alarms: Your Obligations

  • Homes built before 1 July 1997 must have at least one 9-volt battery-operated smoke alarm
  • Homes built or significantly renovated after 1 July 1997 must have a 240-volt (hard-wired) smoke alarm.
  • Buildings submitted for approval from 1st May 2014 must have hard-wired and interconnected smoke alarms.

** UPDATE: Smoke alarm legislation significantly changed the rules governing your requirements for smoke alarms in your home. Read our article on Queensland’s new smoke alarm legislation. **
